String puppets
Closed

When I was about eight or nine my gran bought me two string puppets, one for Christmas and one for birthday (three days apart) worse presents ever! Never got to grips with them and they remained in a shoe box under my bed forever, even my dad wasn't able to work them.

I had one as a child, could never make it do anything. Too many strings to move. My Mum cut the strings off and I played with it as a doll.

At least your birthday was three days away from xmas. Mine is on xmas day itself :/ Didnt best please mum when she suddenly went into labour at noon on xmas day either, lol. Thankfully, I got stuff like nylon PJ's to skid off the edge of my bed when I jumped between those horrible nylon sheets and nigh elctrocuted myself with the static. So no puppets for me :)

I always found string puppets to be a bit creepy; even the ones in Sound of Music (Lonely Goatheard). Hand puppets are okay, and love the Muppets :-)
